Movie Review: Deadpool
No wait, I'm not going to give a full review. Here's what I thought of it: great fun, 3.25 stars out of 4.
Now, will you like it? That depends a lot on you. It's full of profanity-laced graphic cartoon violence, and that does not appeal to everyone. Here are two reviewers who I regularly read and respect, one who loved the move (Reelviews), one who hated it (Flikfilospher). Scroll down on the Reelviews review and there's the red-band trailer. Watch that, it's an honest trailer, it's a fair sampling of the move. If it appeals, then you'll like the move. If it appalls, then you'd best not go.
Two more bonus reviews. First from a friend who's a fan of the comic book source; he gives it a thumbs-up, said it's true to the source material. Finally, there's the review over at Liberty mag, which sports the tagline Not for everyone – and that's OK. Yeah, that's about right. Watch the trailer, you'll know very quickly.
Anyway, I thought it was pretty damn good.
